Title: I'm here. You're here. Let's chat!
Post by: Haids1987 on August 12, 2010, 12:45:52 PM
So a lot of times I'll be checking the forum and I'll notice that there is someone else on at the same time as me, and we kind of talk back and forth to each other through threads.  That's fun, of course, but it interferes with the flow of games!  (You guys and your goofy "wait two posts" rule! ::))

So this is the thread to chitchat back and forth with whoever happens to be on at the same time as you.  It doesn't have to be deep conversation (or even be on topic), anything will do.  Plus, it'll boost post count, and that's always a great day for everyone!

Sooooooo......hello.  I actually don't think anyone is on right now (;]), but here I am.

They should amend it to "wait two posts or at least an hour" or something like that. :D

It's pretty much the rule for every forum game to keep things from getting too spammy. :P

I'm breaking the "wait 2 posts" rule, but:

Hey Haids. Are you listening to music right now?
Title: Re: I'm here. You're here. Let's chat!
Post by: Jafar on August 12, 2010, 09:57:20 PM
I don't think the Two Posts rule really applies here, since this is less of a game and more of a conversation thread.

A Useless Conversation Thread, if you will. :P

Yeah - I think that was at least part of the point of the thread - getting around the two-post rule.

Well, from what I remember back in the day, the General Chat thread was relatively serious, while the Useless Conversation Thread was for loony misadventures. :P

So, which is this? It doesn't seem serious, but it doesn't seem very loony, either.

How exactly are you making them? From scratch?
Title: Re: I'm here. You're here. Let's chat!
Post by: Jafar on August 12, 2010, 11:14:48 PM
Aw, it's just some simple recoloring, that's all. When I can do the hats properly, THEN you can say I have talent. XD
How exactly are you making them? From scratch?

Well, basically, I take a simple standing sprite of Mega Man: (http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b180/RetroJafar/MegaNoHelm.png)

Then I take a quick screenshot to use for reference. (http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b180/RetroJafar/Alexander.png)

I put them next to each other, and go to work at Mega Man's sprite in MS Paint.  Sometimes the hair needs tweaking, and sometimes the outfits are a little complicated, but I just do my best until I come up with something that looks half-decent. (http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b180/RetroJafar/MegaAlex.png)

Some characters are a bit trickier though...what with their hats, purses, facial hair, curly shoes....
At least the latter two I can just edit, but I pretty much have to make the hats by scratch, with varying results.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b180/RetroJafar/Hats.png)

I STILL can't get Pepper's silly colonial hat to look right... XD

Post by: Jafar on August 12, 2010, 11:19:45 PM
Not so far. I haven't really needed any fancy effects. MS Paint's basic, but it does fine for simple jobs like this.

Didn't we used to have a thread which purpose was not to be on topic? which ofcourse was impossible since if you go offtopic in an offtopic thread you are on topic, but myea.

This is just for chatting.  It doesn't matter if it's on topic, it doesn't even matter if you actually chat or say a random word (remember the TRAIN thread ;)), but yeah, it gets around the two-post rule. ;D

Long story short, I'm taking a year off between high school and college to basically do whatever I want - including working for Phoenix Online (I applied for QA Tester). *crosses fingers*

Anyways, I have some relatives out West that are working in my future profession and are willing to host me for a few weeks at a time. So in the interest of acquiring life knowledge and experience, I'm going West!

Pretty great, actually. Nothing I had to get done today other than grocery shopping.

My sister and father are going skydiving, which I do not like, too dangerous. Personally there's no way I would ever do that, I hate heights and the sensation of falling. :S

Other than that, not much. Just waiting for orientation on Monday and then classes starting on Wednesday.

Dude, I've never gone skydiving before, and if I did I think there'd be a trail of urine behind me.  ::)  You're kind of a thrill-seeker, aren't you? :)

Class is already starting again?  Sheesh.  Good luck with that!

I'd like to announce the word "orangutan" to everyone.

You see, it's a very special word because it begins with the word "orange" but it gets cut off by an "utan". How many other words do that? None. Because if they did, they would be "orangutan" or perhaps "oranutan". One of those is already a word and the other is just silly. The defense rests.

Thank you. You may now return to your regularly scheduled off-topic chatting.
